I posted a comment 2 years ago on an article about a Kickstarter project and the idea of failed projects and empty promises. I received a fair few dislikes. Well....hate to say I told you so ;)

Lovefilm ditches game rentals

Cancelled mine just now. Blockbuster do it so I might give them a try. Such a shame because I was impressed with Lovefilm. I couldn't care less about streaming or renting bluray/dvd etc.

David Hayter is "Solid Snake" in the video game world. Replacing him is like swapping out Bruce Willis for someone else in the Die Hard films.

UK government fines Sony for 2011 PlayStation hack

Vergis69

5 years ago

I notice that neither the article or anyone in the comments (that I noticed anyway) have mentioned the fact that the hack cost Sony $105million+ not including the recent fine and PR hit. Which again was taken into the account during the hearing that Sony was fined in.

If you take the time to read/listen to the news properly you would of known this.

250,000 fine? of course its not enough. However add that to the cost which Sony had to fork out because of it then your closer to what it should be.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-04-27-the-psn-hack-one-year-on

The article for this site. There are others elsewhere of course.

Sony and the industry was taught a harsh lesson. Lets hope its never repeated.

Play.com closing retail business in March

Vergis69

5 years ago

I live on the other Channel Island of Guernsey. This LVCR has made a huge impact locally as well with hundreds losing their jobs.

Seems the UK gov would rather have a bit more money rather than hundreds of people in work.

A real shame that Play.com is now added to the growing list of companies that have left.

Gabe Newell lays out Valve's Steam Box plans

The Idea is pretty sound but at the estimated price range I wouldn't even consider buying one however "Cool" it might be.

You could purchase a highish end PC for less money.

Sub 300 or it isn't happening.

Join the Guild Wars 2 stress test on Monday

Vergis69

6 years ago

@ChthonicEcho I understand the need to control numbers of testers by all means and I would not expect several weeks of open betas in which an insane of people would try and play.

However, closed sign-up/selection beta tests are very common. Like Diablo 3 for example. Several waves of testers then a huge open stress test at the end of which no-one had to pay a cent/penny to participate.

But end of the day some people are willing to pay upfront for the privilege. I on the other hand am not.

Each to their own :)

Titan Quest "spiritual successor" Kickstarter announced

Vergis69

6 years ago

@nitx Did I say they did not or there was a problem? I was referring to KickStarters in general.

"Kickstarter things" and "any of the devs" would have made that obvious if people would of taken the time to read my comment.

I like Titan Quest, why the hell would I not want a sequel/successor? lol.

Im not sure about these KickStarter things and how many are popping up... will be interesting to see if any of the devs deliver on their promises.

An old school Resident Evil game or an FF7 Remake would see me get my wallet out.

The game isnt perfect by any means but its FUN and ENTERTAINING. Which is what a game is supposed to be if im not mistaken?

probs 8/10 in my book. Would be a 9 if it wasnt for the odd bug and bad voice acting.

Ubisoft confirms online pass

Vergis69

7 years ago

These "Online pass" systems are a joke

Another point... on the PSN anyway, these passes are displayed when the game is released and in no way does it mention you would have received a code if bought new. So you can guarantee some poor people are buying the pass not knowing they already have a code.

Whats next? watch a 2nd hand movie and have to pay again for the last 20 mins?...

Fucking disgusting.
